The Opposite of Loneliness, Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan

Marina Keegan (1989-2012) was an award-winning author, journalist, playwright, poet, actress, and activist.

Her nonfiction has been published in The New York Times; her fiction has been published on NewYorker.com, and read on NPR’s Selected Shorts; her musical, Independents, was a New York Times Critics’ Pick. Marina’s final essay for The Yale Daily News, “The Opposite of Loneliness”, became an instant global sensation, viewed by more than 1.4 million people from 98 countries.

‘A generation-defining collection published posthumously…Her voice is relevant, sharp, fresh, unfiltered and poetic, with a dry wit. You can dive in and out of her questioning and her musings and meanderings. So much promise’, Jenna Coleman, star of Doctor Who and Victoria.

Marina Keegan’s star was on the rise when she graduated from Yale in May 2012. She had a play that was to be produced at the New York International Fringe Festival and a job waiting for her at the New Yorker. Tragically, five days after graduation, Marina died in a car crash.

As her family, friends and classmates, deep in grief, joined to create a memorial service for Marina, her unforgettable last essay for the Yale Daily News, ‘The Opposite of Loneliness’, went viral, receiving more than 1.4 million hits.

She had struck a chord. Even though she was just 22 when she died, Marina left behind a rich, expansive trove of prose that, like her title essay, captures the hope, uncertainty and possibility of her generation. The Opposite of Loneliness is an assemblage of Marina’s essays and stories that articulates the universal struggle we all face as we work out what we aspire to be and how we can harness our talents to make an impact on the world.

“Apricots of Donbas” new book of poetry by Ukrainian poet Lyuba Yakimchuk

we will walk back, even with bare feet
if we don’t find our home in the place where we left it
we will build another one in an apricot tree
out of luscious clouds, out of azure ether

 

Apricots of Donbas­—by award-winning contemporary Ukrainian poet Lyuba Yakimchuk—is the 7th book in the Lost Horse Press Contemporary Ukrainian Poetry Series. As are previous volumes in the Series, it has been released in a dual-language edition.

Born and raised in a small coal-mining town in Ukraine’s industrial east, Yakimchuk lost her family home in 2014, when the region was occupied by Russian-backed militants, and her parents and sister were forced to flee as refugees.

Reflecting the complex emotional experiences of a civilian witnessing a gradual disintegration of her familiar surroundings, Yakimchuk’s poetry is versatile, ranging from sumptuous verses about the urgency of erotic desire in a war-torn city to imitations of child-like babbling about the tools and toys of military combat.

Playfulness in the face of catastrophe is a distinctive feature of Yakimchuk’s voice, evoking the legacy of the Ukrainian Futurists of the 1920s. The poems’ artfulness goes hand in hand with their authenticity, offering intimate glimpses into the story of a woman affected by a life-altering situation beyond her control.

(…)

my friends are hostages
and I can’t reach them, I can’t do netsk
to pull them out of the basements
from under the rubble

yet here you are, writing poems
ideally slick poems
high-minded gilded poems
beautiful as embroidery

there’s no poetry about war
just decomposition
only letters remain
and they all make a single sound — rrr

(…)

Lyuba Yakimchuk from Decomposition,
translated from the Ukrainian by Oksana Maksymchuk and Max Rosochinsky

 

Lyuba Yakimchuk
is a poet, playwright, and screenwriter. Her two collections of poetry, Moda (2009) and Abrykosy Donbasu (2015) won prestigious awards, including the International Slavic Poetic Award (Ukraine) and the International Poetic Award of the Kovalev Foundation (USA). Since 2019, her play The Wall has been running at the Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theater, the largest in Ukraine. She also authored the script for the film The Slovo House: An Unfinished Novel, reflecting on the literary life in the 1930’s Kharkiv. Born and raised in a small town near Luhansk, Yakimchuk now lives in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Born and raised in a small coal-mining town in Ukraine’s industrial east, Yakimchuk lost her family home in 2014 when the region was occupied by Russian-backed militants and her parents and sister were forced to flee as refugees.

Gregor Schneider by Raimund Stecker (Ed.)

Since 1985, Gregor Schneider has occupied an abandoned house next to one of the largest chasms in the world—the lignite-rich surface mine near Rheydt-Mönchengladbach known as the Garzweiler—which is also next to where his parents ran their business.

In the building, which he named Haus u r, he proceeded to build rooms within rooms.

These eerie spaces are constructed from materials salvaged from the houses that were to be crushed by juggernaut-sized bucket-wheel excavators to expand the mine.

With this publication, art historian Raimund Stecker reconnects with his first visit to Haus u r. Schneider and Stecker have known each other since the artist’s student years at the Münster Academy of Art in the late 1980s.

In 1992, Stecker curated one of Schneider’s first exhibitions, and has closely followed his career ever since.

This book is published on the occasion of Konschthal Esch’s inaugural exhibition, curated by Christian Mosar.

TENTOONSTELLING MONIEK SMEETS ‘PORTRETTENCHIRURGIE’

   

Het Metropolitan Museum | Tilburg, de raamtentoonstellingen aan de Stedekestraat, opent dit nieuwe jaar met een markante tentoonstelling van Moniek Smeets, een bevlogen kartontovenaar die gedreven haar eigen foto’s mishandelt.

Relieken uit vervlogen tijden, van Treebeek tot Tilburg, verschijnen als sprookjesachtige werelden in bewegend papier, karton en elastiekjes. Een aanrader voor iedere veerkrachtige Tilburger.

“Tien vensters vol analoge deep fake en andere aardigheden door beeldend kunstenaar, animator en theatermaker Moniek Smeets. Een nieuwe werkelijkheid vol bewogen alternatieve feiten en spiegelbedrog … zoals de ‘Portrettenmachine’, de ‘Stemmingswisselaar’ en de ‘Wraaktassen’. Is alles wel wat het lijkt?

Kortom: een individueel groepsportret over het ondraaglijke leed van foto’s die ooit weggegooid gaan worden. Wie denkt Moniek Smeets wel wie ze is?

Een ‘Grote Smoelenshow’ verrijkt met o.a enkele rekwisieten uit theatervoorstellingen van Wiersma & Smeets.”

De tentoonstelling ‘Portrettenchirurgie’ van Moniek Smeets is van vrijdag 14 januari t/m zondag 13 maart 2022 te zien in het ‘Metropolitan Museum | Tilburg’, raamtentoonstellingen aan de Stedekestraat 15 te Tilburg, dagelijks dag en nacht geopend en de toegang is vrij.

‘Komijnsplitsers’ nieuwe dichtbundel van Marieke Lucas Rijneveld

Met zijn nieuwe dichtbundel Komijnsplitsers zet Marieke Lucas Rijneveld opnieuw een grote stap in zijn dichterschap.

In acht afdelingen onderzoekt Rijneveld wat het betekent om te wonen: in een huis, in jezelf en in verhoudingen tot anderen. Wie of wat heb je nodig om een compleet mens te zijn?

In een van de gedichten wordt verhaald over het verlangen één ruimte te zijn; iemand zoekt een brandtrap uit deze dag, trekt in plaats van een grijs vest een jongen aan.

De vrees om iemand te worden die de ander niet kan hebben – ‘om de verkeerde mens om je beenderen te vormen’ – vormt het grootste gevaar voor het maar al te herkenbare en hoopvolle verlangen naar groei.

In een taal die naar adem hapt en het zweet van het voorhoofd veegt, staat ‘Komijnsplitsers’ als een huis. In 2020 won Marieke Lucas Rijneveld de International Booker Prize voor ‘De avond is ongemak’.

Vincent Berquez: Delight

 

Delight

I’ve been delighting in your face
since the Eureka mess of our embrace,
the cork of fizzing kissing taken place,
the sexual notation of blushing staves,
a lust-compass flashing up radar blips.

Sloppy corners, edges in melted clips
of our manic laughter, on risky ships,
in the city’s darkness and muddy trips,
naked tangles on private sandy strips,
isolated scrub lands and forest bits,
disused canal tunnel with freezing tits,
stopping the car in shadowy lay-bys,
alleyways, echoing blissed-out cries,
she delighted, ripping open my flies.

And through our lustiness a miracle came,
the pneumatic forces created the near-same,
through the acrobatic propagated struggle
in the hospital you pushed out of the bubble
when we saw you delight in your life force.
Now we are celebrating the main course
of us all together, as a loving source,
of the wonderful blended mix,
of our delight, our scented lives transfixed
we have built the home as well as the bricks.

Vincent Berquez
Delight

Vincent Berquez: Dancing into the cream of the night

Dancing into
the cream of the night

You said take me dancing
in the cream of the night

like we did that time
when the music was jasper Spanish.

The seated flamenco women clapped
out the velocity of chattering rhythms

pushing the black and scarlet music
to the edge of our half-conscious world,

exciting the bloody pump with the drum
of temptation that agitated our lustiness.

The partnership of limbs tangled
loquacious, heady, demanding.

We took to the slippery dance floor
where I held the spine of your wet skin

in the stretch of my flexed palm –
you said your heart needed to dance with me

until the silver slit cracked into the shock
of the smoky grey marbled morning.

In charged anarchy, we succumbed
to fog drunkenly and lost ourselves till then.

Vincent Berquez
Dancing into the cream of the night
